Jeremy Beasley, Filmmaker, Captivates Us With Tiny Home Stories From Real People (VIDEO)

If you ever needed to be convinced that living small can have big benefits, just take a look at filmmaker Jeremy Beasley's "Small Is Beautiful," tiny home short film.

Beasley, who travels and interviews tiny house dwellers, has captivated us with one woman named Ingrid. She lives on a 355-square-foot house boat in Amsterdam. In the video above, Ingrid explains how living in this teeny space has been a dream of hers since she was a child and how much better this way of life is than living in a normal-sized house. (Partially because it's easier to clean!) On Beasley's website, he explains that Ingrid raised three children on this boat, proving that small living can also be family friendly.

Watch the video to learn more about Ingrid's story, and be sure to head over to Beasley's website for more information.

More tiny homes, please.
